    According to Ted Failon (TV Patrol), simplify and break it down…On a 20/20 hindsight, would you have voted for President Aquino six years ago given the fact that he is such an irresponsible leader with poor decision making and easily misled by incompetent staff??? You could bet at this moment that 77% would be YES!!!

    I think this Mamasapano fiasco is going out of control for the President to resign for the failure of the operation.If we do that we will have a election every month or every year to replace the president,Any well plan sometimes goes wrong like the one in Somalia where the Americans were overwhelm by the Somalis rebels.Who would have thought that hundreds or thousands well armed battle tested Somali rebels would join the fight against the American.A helicopter was shot down by the mob and the American forces has to beat a hasty retreat.The whole country was under arms for two decades and they got lots of experience in fighting the Russian back regime during that time,fighting among themselves when the dictator was remove plus fighting against Ethopia such that they were war veterans of many battles.If the president really gave instruction to the operation and tactical commanders it is up to them to implement the order.What we should ask is why did help did not come from the Air Force though there were 2 with president and another 2 in Basilan according to the news.They should had been send to suppress the rebels.Make a strafing pass that would make the rebel heads go down on the ground
    Artillery should have been used, a ranging smoke round first.Some homes of the locals are nearby according to the army so the refusal to fire but the Locals may have fled the AREA OF Mamasapano already.Now the Army is fighting the BIFF and
    firing mortars and artillery hitting some structure. They should have used the helicopter pilots as their forward observer as there are no spotter available with the SAF.Planning for any emergency situation was not included when something goes
    wrong.The Mechanized troops arrived late when their camp was just kilometers away.it seems the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing,no coordination in times of emergencies.The question is why it took a long time for the fighting to stop with all the overwhelming resources the armed forces have at their disposal and did somebody forbid to use this lethal force as it would affect the peace process??If it did, heads should roll.
